Pros:easy to use Windows like setup
Cons:Hard to read screen, quick battery drain with use of backlight, color screened ones aren't that must more expensive.
I bought the Cassiopeia E10 after comparing several models with similar functions. I primarily bought it to replace my electronic organizer, mainly planning on using the calendar, alarms, and address book and liked the idea that I could synchronize it with my computer.
In reality I've ended up really only using it for the address book and for playing Tetris when I'm stuck somewhere and bored. The calendar is nice though for reminding me of appointments since I can set it to alert me when I'm due somewhere. I like the fact that the address book has many different subheadings for email, home numbers, work numbers, etc. I like the electronic address book better than a regular address book because I can easily replace an address when someone moves, rather than ending up with 3 blocked out addresses on a page and everything out of alphabetical order. I also like the fact that I can put notes on my PDA rather than writing things down on a piece of paper which I will then lose. I have occasionally synchronized the PDA with my computer, but honestly most of the time I keep their information separate. The bonus programs that came with the PDA were okay, I only use Tetris and the mini version of Quicken
What I don't like about the Cassiopeia E10 is that the screen is sort of hard to see, the contrast is not great, and I have not found a way to change that. The backlight drains the batteries in seconds so is pretty much useless; if I'm where I can plug the thing in then I'm probably where I can just turn on the lights.
I have not bought any accessories for my PDA because they are somewhat expensive. I would love to have the modem, but I honestly don't need it since I have a laptop anyway.
So, I would say that the Cassiopeia is best for someone who wants a fancy address book and calendar and something to play games on, and won't miss the $200.
